MDA CEO Steven Derks last week called on General President Harold Schaitberger to take the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge.
Of course General President Schaitberger accepted, joining the viral campaign to help fight and find a cure for ALS and other muscular diseases.
With help from Local 36 and the crew of Engine 23, Schaitberger – in his dark blue suit – took on three five-gallon buckets of ice water just outside IAFF headquarters. Watch as he calls on all of the IAFF leadership to help the cause and take the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge.
